Transitioning Society Publications to Open Access – IO: In The Open

“To continue the progress towards an open scholarly ecosystem, a group of like-minded individuals from libraries, academic institutions, publishers, and consortia have organized to provide support, advocacy, and referral services within the publishing community and related professional organizations. 

Our group, aptly called Transitioning Society Publications to Open Access (or, TSPOA), took root at the October 2018 Choosing Pathways to OA working forum. The forum brought together more than 125 library and consortium leaders and key academic stakeholders to engage in action-oriented deliberations about a range of OA funding strategies so they could leave with customized plans for how they intend to support the global transition towards openness. …”
